NRL Trans-Tasman Double-Header - Kangaroos v Kiwis
Australia will play New Zealand in an end-of-season double-header at WIN Stadium in Wollongong on Friday October 25.
The announcement of the trans-Tasman Test provides the first details of the international calendar which is expected to include an Oceania series and Great Britain Lions tour to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
It will be the first time the Kangaroos have hosted the Kiwis in Australia since the mid-season ANZAC Test was cancelled in 2017.
The double-header will feature a women's Test between the Jillaroos and Kiwi Ferns, who previously played in Wollongong in 2014.
It will also be the first time the Australian Kangaroos take on the New Zealand Kiwis at WIN Stadium.
NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said having international rugby league back in the Illawarra was a great result for the region and the game.
"Rugby league has a home in the Illawarra, so we're delighted to bring the pinnacle of rugby league back to Wollongong for the first time in five years," Greenberg said.
